Marathon/UT Mod in the Works
9:37 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story
We recently received an email from makers of yet another mod for Unreal Tournament centered around the Marathon universe. This project is known as Marathon Rampancy, and has a similar but distinct goal from the other project Marathon Resurrection. Where Resurrection is looking to be a complete recreation of the Marathon experience, Rampancy is just trying to give multiplayer UT a Marathon-ish feel. Here's an excerpt from the press release:
Back at the start of the summer when Bungie had been bought by It should be interesting to see how the mod "feels," if it is in fact released as an alpha build late this week. You can never have too much Marathon or UT, so the more people working on a conversion project, the merrier.

Microsoft and the future of Mac Halo was in doubt, two
Marathon-lovers teamed up and started learning how to mod-make in
order to revive Marathon's multiplayer experience. Three months and
a heck of a lot of caffeine later, the mod is almost ready for prime
Announcing Marathon|Rampancy for UT.
Marathon|Rampancy combines Bungie's incredible multiplayer game
design with all new John Woo inspired visuals. Marathon|Rampancy
features new looks for the weapons and the HUD while retaining
Marathon's awesome weapon balance, gametypes, sounds, and physics.
Marathon|Rampancy changes the basic way that UT plays so that it
feels like Marathon without attempting a total Marathon conversion
including maps and player models.
Stop by and take a sneak peak at www.marathonrampancy.com. An alpha
version (stable, but not feature complete) will be released this
coming Friday the 13th for everyone who is curious.
